Resident Resources

Salt Water Pool

Our pool and surrounding area is open from 8am to 10pm daily. We do our best to keep the pool open as late into the year as possible and open it as early as weather permits. Check with the property manager or Facebook page for updates on the pool’s opening and closing each year.

Due to a lesser amount of chlorine required, salt water pools are: better for your skin, less harmful to the environment and feel better to be in. Salt water is detoxifying and hydrating to the skin and even reduces inflammation of joints and muscles. Swimming in our pool is not only relaxing, but it is even better for your health than other pools.

Cable/Internet

Time Warner Cable is our preferred cable company and for this reason TWC has preinstalled wiring to provide a speedy installation for our residents. You are welcome to use other providers servicing this area excluding satellite companies.

For a speedy install please contact our community representative, David Jawo, at 614-230-4272, david.jawo@twcable.com

Utilities

Your property manager will contact NEP (Nationwide Energy Partners), our energy service provider, to create an account for you. Your water and electric charges will come directly to your mailbox on one bill after the first billing cycle. The bill will include your account number and instructions to setup online bill pay, auto-withdrawal and details about your usage.

NEP is a great resource to learn how to reduce your utility use and expenses each month. Visit nationwide energy partners to see what you can do to conserve energy and money.

Rent payment options

Rent is due the first day of every month and can be paid online or onsite. You can drop a check off inside the Community Building in the rent drop box located next to the leasing office. To pay online please visit the link below. There will be a 2.5% convenience fee applied to all transactions.
